Two vintage romances available for proofreading

The Bride of the Tomb and Queenie's Terrible Secret (cover)The latest Digital Library offering to enter the distributed proofreaders project is an omnibus volume containing two vintage romance novels: The Bride of the Tomb and Queenie’s Terrible Secret.

The Bride of the Tomb was an early hit from Mrs. Alex. McVeigh Miller, a successful author in her day, and it remains prominent enough to merit scholarly analysis. Queenie’s Terrible Secret is a less well-known novel by the same writer, but it offers the same brand of melodrama, telling (as its subtitle explains) of “A Young Girl’s Strange Fate.”

This particular combined edition is part of Street & Smith’s Eagle series of dime novels; covers of other volumes from the series can be seen in Syracuse University Library’s Street & Smith Cover Art Collection.
